Sasquatch Cold IPA


Recommended Posts

 

This appears to be a daring brew.  With D1 (Cascade), D3 (Chinook) and D5 (Amarillo), this brew will sport 75g of dry hops.  Also, the 7.5% ABV is a little daunting.  I noticed that the brewing program is listed as "custom" but without detail.  Since the yeast is Y7, I expect the program to be similar to lager temperatures.  This is not a problem since the droid will run the appropriate brewing program if you tell it you're running the Sasquatch Cold IPA brew.

I have added it to my BrewArt order spreadsheet as BrewArt_Order_Guide_07.xlsx.  As a reminder for new users of this spreadsheet: all users will need to edit column B as to their inventory and Aussies will need to edit column C as to ingredient prices.  Since many (if not most) of us who buy ingredients separately (rather than in BrewPrints) supply their own hops, I do not include hops in the spreadsheet.

@Andy Simma, I will be waiting for your appraisal of this brew.  Thanks for trying it out and reporting on it.

🙂 Happy brewing.

When starting from the app, selecting the brew from my shelf,  it has propagate 20c then ferment at 15c

I did contemplate dropping one of the X5s to lower the ABV but decided to give it go as is. It should be ready to drink mid winter here so I do enjoy a few big abvs when it’s this cold and I know x5s also make it a bit dryer so keen to see what this one does. 75g of hops will be the most I have ever done. Really excited to get into this one. 
 

I was really happy with the spring water used in my last brew, Schwarzbier, so have used again for this one.

@Andy Simma:  Thanks for the detail on the propagate and fermenting temperatures.  Good to know how to set the droid manually in case the WiFi isn't working.

I think the best way to test a new BrewPrint is to run it straight as designed.  Then we can modify it later as to taste and preference.  Again, thanks for breaking the trail for the rest of us.

I have been using an RV in-line water filter for my brewing for the past several years.  Public water supplies in Texas vary from time to time, but the taste of my filtered water has been good and is consistent.  I have followed @Captain 3 Droids advice and never overused a filter cartridge beyond its time and volume rating.

🙂 Happy brewing.
